Facundo Pellistri, who was one of five first-team incomings at the club last summer, has played and impressed in all three pre-season games so far this summer.
The young winger scored in the curtain-raiser against Derby nearly two weeks ago and then featured in games against Queens Park Rangers and Brentford, making his first appearance at Old Trafford against the latter.
Pellistri spent the second half of last season on loan at La Liga club Deportivo Alaves, helping the side secure safety in Spain’s top flight. The 19-year-old made 12 appearances there, starting five times.

According to journalist Fabian Bertolini, Pellistri is set to return to Alaves for a second loan spell but there are details to be completed before a deal can be officially confirmed.
Despite his sparkling pre-season form, Pellistri is unlikely to feature regularly under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season, with Amad and Anthony Elanga both being more established in the first team.
